We hear all these awful stories. The danger is that the enemy uses this time of chaos, confusion, grief, and anger as an opportunity to send his little monkeys into our brains.
The monkeys that chatter. The monkeys that come to distract us from the Lord and take away our peace.
“If we are losing our peace in such a way that we are taking our eyes off the Lord and losing the joy, love, and glory that the Lord wants us to have we have been tricked by the enemy.”
There must be grief in our hearts, we must be aware of what is going on, speak about these things, and intercede. But, never allow the Devil's little monkeys into our brains. That is bad mental hygiene. It doesn't help anything. If anything, it will make things worse for you. It will take away your peace.
Brothers and sisters, may the peace of Christ be with you.
